Annie Matchups Overview
Annie General information
Look for trades around your stun. Pre-level 6, use the stun on your Q rather than W as you’re guaranteed to land the stun if you use your Q.
Annie is really good at starting team fights if she can flank the enemy. Running at them is going to be difficult, but you could set up death bushes and wait for the enemy to walk by before throwing out Tibbers R.
If you’re not able to kill the enemy, you should try and roam with Tibbers R and try to impact your side lanes. Push mid lane and then roam.
Every combo you need to master the champion!
